Glamping in the Adirondack Mountains

A couple of weekends ago, my friend Johnnybell, her family, my boyfriend and I went on a 4 hour drive upstate to stay at a rustic log cabin in the Adirondack mountains! GlampingHub.com reached out to her to so we could test out the GlampingHub website and experience it on our own.










Website and experience it on our own. As you can see in the video below we had so much fun!





There was a rapid river behind the cabin that you can hear rushing through the valley once you stepped outside. And the surrounding Adirondack mountains made for picturesque sunsets. There was still snow on the ground even in the beginning of April! So we warmed up each night sitting by the fire and snacking on some fresh s’mores. This was truly the perfect cabin experience and I made some memories with Johnnybell and her family that I will never forget.

I’d like to just thank Johnnybell and Glamping Hub for inviting us along!

Glamping Hub is an easy to use website with hundreds of places to stay and plan your outdoor getaway.

Try it out for yourself on your next adventure!

Radley London Bag Giveaway!





It’s finally spring in New York City! When I saw the little buds of the cherry blossom trees in central park last week, I knew I had to take the opportunity to photograph them in full bloom!

It’s a beautiful sight to see, in some ways NYC comes into bloom also in the Spring.
You see more people out and about- walking their dogs, strolling the parks with their babies, and pic-nicking when the sun is out. There’s something in the air in these weeks that NYC turns from being a cold, windy ice box to finally a warm, colorful, sunny city.

When I went to central park it was nice to walk around in just a denim skirt, top and my new favorite bag (no more poofy jackets and mittens here!).  And as you can tell from the title of this post- I am hosting a giveaway! I’ve teamed up with Radley Londonhttp://www.radleylondon.com/ to give away to one special person this Richmond Park Shoulder bag in Lolly Pink. Ever since I received this bag, I haven’t stopped wearing it. It seriously so convenient and transitions perfectly from night-to-day. The rose gold metal hardware also adds a touch of lux and the signature “Scottie" dog logo adds a touch of whimsy.

If you want to win this bag it is simple to enter!
All you have to do is:
1.Follow my Instagram 
2. like and comment that you have entered
3.Follow Radley London

And that’s it!

Good luck lovelies!

Staycation With CitizenM Hotels





 Radley London - Richmond Park bag






Last weekend I had the pleasure of staying at CitizenM Hotel in NYC for a fun staycation!
It was my first time doing such thing and it was truly amazing. I love to walk around and feel like a tourist in my own city and staying at a trendy hotel made that experience so much more special.

CitizenM Hotel offers a unique experience for their guest where affordable luxury is key. 
Every detail of your stay is thought out (they even have complementary power adopters in each room) and all the appliances are super modern- you can control your whole room from an iPad so each room is customizable!
This hotel has two bars, outdoor chill area, gym and a HUGE lobby that actually feels like a cozy eclectic decorated living room. In the evening my boyfriend and I enjoyed cocktails at the rooftop bar that had stunning views of Times Square and in the morning we had some breakfast and went for a walk around central park. Can't get any sweeter than that!

Check out my experience in this short video:



If you are in NYC (they also have locations in Amsterdam, Paris, London) and looking to do something different I would highly recommend staying at Citizen M for an unforgettable experience. While you are here check out these fun things to do around the hotel:

Watch a new musical on Broadway- how about Amelie?

See some wildlife at the Central Park Zoo.
Grab some dinner at Stardust Diner with singing waiters.
Get inspired at the Musuem of Modern Art.
